Announcing New Dates and Partnership for 2021

Announcing New Dates and Partnership for 2021


BIG NEWS FROM WASTEBUILD - WasteBuild announces new collaboration with World Architecture Festival, the world’s largest live architectural awards programme.

With vaccination programmes being implemented around the world and infection rates hopefully on a permanent downward trend there is great cause for optimism for the built environment and for our collective low carbon recovery.

This is clearly great news for the events industry as well, but unfortunately it is now clear that the easing of restrictions will not come quite soon enough for WasteBuild in Amsterdam this June.

Which is why we are delighted to announce our updated plans and collaboration with the World Architecture Festival – the world’s largest live architectural awards programme.

So what is the plan for 2021?

First WasteBuild EVERYWHERE to now run ONLINE from 15-16 July as part of the WAF Futures architectural week. The WasteBuild programme will remain focussed purely on circular and regenerative solutions for the built environment and all delegates who already have a conference pass will be automatically transferred across to the new dates PLUS get access to the entire week of content from WAF Futures as well. As the dates are changing we are also extending our early bird pricing until 14 May.

This new combined virtual event represents an amazing opportunity for WasteBuild to take our low-carbon, circular and regenerative message beyond the converted and to reach the largest and most active group of architects anywhere in the world. This means taking the message beyond the early adopters and to the masses.

Founder and Event Director of WasteBuild Frazer Stokes says:

“Through what has been an incredibly tough year for us all we have always tried to innovate and offer something different with WasteBuild to keep the circular built environment message and transition going. This new collaboration represents the pinnacle of our work so far and truly positions the low-carbon, circular and regenerative message at the heart of the architectural world”

Paul Finch, Programme Director for the World Architecture Festival says:

"We are delighted to be working with WasteBuild to promote the virtues of the circular economy, and the role that architects can play within the wider construction industry to promote it. This will be a constructive collaboration which can contribute to creative conversations about sustainability and climate change."
